Australian Innovation Festival 2010 gears up for national and state launches

3

The 2010 Australian Innovation Festival celebrates its ninth anniversary by again focusing on the 4Cs of Innovation — Creativity, Connections, Collaboration and Commercialisation. This year’s Festival theme “Building Sustainable Businesses” highlights the importance of innovation during this period of regeneration from last year’s global economic uncertainty.

The Festival aims to showcase the importance of innovation in Australia’s economic, social and cultural environments and, most importantly, create a culture of innovation among all Australians. For anyone looking for up-to-date information on Australian Innovation and Entrepreneurship, or if you want to establish a few new connections with Australia’s cutting-edge innovators, the Innovation Festival is always a good place to start.

The Festival runs from 26th April to 30th May, with over 500 events in all States and Territories. See below for launch event details in each State and Territory.
